When someone list that they "ate 8oz of chicken breast" with any given meal are they talking about pre-cooked weight or after cooking weight? I'm trying to figure out when I should be weighing the food that I chart. Thanks!

Shouldn't matter as long as you are counting the calories correctly, 8 oz raw meat = X cals, 8 oz cooked meat = Y cals.

Was just for curious, anyone know? Id assume the calories change when being cooked, I just would like a better grasp on the whole thing :)

Nvm found the answer! Macronutrients stay the same, slight loss of proteins in the broth/liquids, but very low drop, primarily just water weight.

WAY too much thought. Eat.
